Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the XFree packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated XFree86 packages that fix a minor denial of service vulnerability are
now available.

XFree86 is an implementation of the X Window System, providing the core
graphical user interface and video drivers.

Flaws in XFree86 4.1.0 permits local or remote attackers who are able to
connect to the X server to cause a denial of service via an out-of-bounds
array index or integer signedness error when using the GLX extension and
Direct Rendering Infrastructure (DRI). The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2004-0093 and
CVE-2004-0094 to these issues.

These issues do not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

All users of XFree86 are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages,
which contain a backported fix and are not vulnerable to these issues.
